The Mermaid Garden by Santa Montefiore

Looking for a pleasant summer beach read?  Montefiore takes two lovely European vacation spots and writes overlapping and intersecting stories with a real eye for detail and atmosphere, as well as some lovable characters.  The writing is a bit cliched at times and the story-line is predictable, but this would be a perfect lazy backyard read with exotic locals, a generous dose of romance and enough intrigue to keep you page-turning.

This book includes discussion questions, an interview with the author and suggestions for fun things to do with your book club... I love this addition and look forward to seeing this more often as book clubs become more popular again.

This one is on my shelf if you want to borrow it!
